Message From Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice - Supporters Please Be Aware!

Dear supporter
It has come to our attention that some local people have been receiving unsolicited telephone calls from a bogus caller saying they are ringing on behalf of the Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice and asking for a donation over the phone. We would like to reassure you that we would never ask directly for donations over the phone or for personal credit card details to be given during an unsolicited telephone call.

From time to time, however, we may use the telephone to update our current supporters on some of the many developments currently going on at the Hospice but we would always direct them to our website and / or the Hospice itself should they wish to make or change their donation - we would never seek personal banking or credit card details over the phone.

If you have any queries or are in any doubt about the bona fide nature of a telephone call on behalf of Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice we would encourage you to contact us directly on 01252 729446 and one of the team here would be happy to help or to advise.

If you would like to support the Hospice in any way please visit our website at where you can find lots of different ways to help us continue delivering specialist palliative care to people in your area.

Thank you for your continued support of the Hospice - we really do rely on this to keep our many and varied services going.
